We provide primary and advanced flight instruction for initial and add-on helicopter certificates and ratings for Private, Commercial, Instrument, Flight Instructor, Flight Instructor-Instrument and Airline Transport Pilot. We also provide transition, recurrent, flight review, insurance check-out, instrument proficiency check, and emergency procedures training.
Here at Spiker Helicopters we provide flight training in both the Brantly B-2B and the Enstrom 280C helicopters. The Brantly is an easy and fun helicopter to learn to fly in. The Enstrom provides more power, room and speed, and is our instrument trainer.
We can also provide flight instruction in a Brantly, Enstrom, Bell 47, or Hiller helicopter supplied by the customer. The aircraft must be current with all inspections and AD's. Aircraft log books may need to be provided as requested by the instructor. The flight instructor has the right to refuse flight in any customer-supplied aircraft.
Want to see what it's like to fly a helicopter without signing up for any courses? Book a discovery/introductory flight and you'll get to fly the helicopter for a half hour with our chief instructor explaining/teaching you how the controls work.This half hour flight is only $245.
Financing for flight training is available through Pilot Finance, Inc.
We recommend Helicopter Online Ground School for great videos to prepare for the written (knowledge test), checkride (practical test), and all-around information for helicopter maneuvers and procedures ground instruction.
Congratulations to the following pilots for passing their checkride with us!
